use of fossil fuels for energy. renewable energy sources are another option. and in golden, colorado, the natural renewable energy laboratory is trying to scale up processes for creating biofuels from the products of american farms their goal is to supply up to a third of the country's gasoline needs within 25 years. both projects are pushing the limits of modern science in hopes of leading the way to a more sustainable energy future. 40% of the world's electricity comes from coal. coal is the fossilized remains of ancient vegetation. and with global reserves that could last over 250 years, it is the cheapest and most abundant nonrenewable energy source available. but burning coal produces exhaust products, including not just water vapor, which is most of what we see coming out of smokestacks, but also carbon dioxide, an invisible greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. as the need for energy around the world continues to grow, new coal-fired power plants that will last 50 years or more come online every week. coal will power the world for decades. how can we continue to u

's interesting is that now for us in the age of postmodernism, this skyline, this sort of mythic field of vision, seems to have receded from our view or seems to have sort of vanished into a reproduction of itself. richard haas here has painted the blank wall of a soho building precisely to trick us. postmodernism is a term that architects adopted in the early seventies to describe a kind of building that dropped a veil of near-classical decoration in front of a traditional boxlike structure. this is michael graves' portland building in oregon, more interested in the building as an image than as a three-dimensional experience. what we're really dealing with in the period in which we live is an extraordinary conformity. that despite the seeming pluralism, the seeming diversity, in fact, we are seeing many, many different reflections of the same underlying reality, and it is that underlying reality which seems to me to be at the root of what's happening in the art of our time. it's as though the world has become a kind of huge billbrd or opaque wall of ages that separates us as individuals from a

of industrial and agricultural land use threatening the world's largest collection of freshwater springs. dr. graham: right now, the biggest question is how far we can stress the system and not push it past the point of no return. narrator: both researchers are working towards a sustainable future to protect the water needed by our species and our planet. arizona is one of the fastest-growing states in the u.s. the consequent demand on freshwater for personal, industrial, and agricultural use is depleting the natural resource and destroying the environment. i'm tom maddock. i'm at the university of arizona, and i study hydrology. i work in the area of ground-water/surface-water interactions. basically, the difference between ground water and surface water is you can float a stick in surface water. in ground water, you really can't do that except maybe looking down a well and dropping the stick down the well. narrator: surface water is typically found in lakes, rivers, and streams. ground water is found beneath the earth's surface in small pores and fractures found within large rock formation

from covering 14% of the earth's land surface to 6% over the last 50 years. in addition to providing us with over 20% of the oxygen we breathe, these forests are the most biologically diverse habitats on the planet, home to over half of the world's estimated 60 million species of plants, animals, and insects. dr. bill laurance: one of the really exciting things about working in tropical rainforests is they're just such a mystery and there's just so much we don't know about what's here, even just in terms of cataloging the number of species here. right now we think there are somewhere between maybe 5 million and 50 million species living in the tropical rainforests of the world. we are talking about that rough of reckoning here. and one of the reasons that we have such a vague idea of what's here is the rainforest canopy. studies that have been done in trapping insects in the canopy have found in many cases that 80% or 90% of the species that they are finding up here are new to science, have never before been documented. and if we extrapolate from what we are finding here throughout the

trace his development away from figurative work to the use of cubist grays, cubist composition, and to an altogether more subtle cubist image. in paris, in 1914, he turned his attention to buildings. this church on the left was one of his subjects. he analyzed the facade and finally distilled it into completely abstract compositions. by reducing the church to a series of vertical and horizontal lines and carefully worked out rectangular oppositions, the church begins to disappear. this would lead to a visual embodiment of the oppositions fundamental to existence-- vertical/horizontal, active/passive, spirit and matter. mondrian was a utopian. he wanted to build a geometric world that would so totally satisfy the human psyche, it would render painting obsolete. although mondrian's ambitions were never realized, there was one event where such utopian ideals did find practical expression. the russian revolution of 1917 was not only a momentous event in world history, it had great significance for russian and stern art, although, as one russian painter put it-- vladimir tatlin-- "w

. at retirement, this same peter would use these accum. in fact, the way it works is that young peter pays into a fund which is immediately used to pay already elderly paul. the notion of a huge accumulating trust is largely a myth. the program is, in fact, a classic case of what economists call a "transfer program." the younger generation is transferring income to the older generation in return for a promise that the next group of young people will treat them in the same way. the second mysterious thing -- at least the founders of the program would have found it mysterious -- is how the social security system could have gotten so huge. social security outlays, now including medicare, totaled $236 billion in 1984, a threefold increase in just 10 years. and this growth will seem like peanuts when, a couple of decades down the road, the baby-boom generation begins to retire. we get better medical care now, we live much longer, we are actually retiring earlier than we used to, and, before too long, there will be many, many more of us to retire. to generalize -- social security is a successful
